'Porch' Light Replacement Fixture with 1141 Bulb
I have replaced the socket in the over-the-door fixture three times in five years due to corrosion and recently looked for a better solution. The original socket accepts an 1141 bulb and uses an isolated ground because the negative side is switched. A replacement is tough to find. I finally found a perfect replacement better than factory. WESBAR makes a fully sealed unit that with a little trimming fits perfectly. It's called a "sealed lamp capsule" their part number 403348 and is intended to replace the lamps in their boat trailer lights that are frequently immersed in water. These are available through most boating supply stores, on-line as well, and costs about $9.00 US. Hookup is straight forward. The white wire is neutral, the red wire is the bright filament of the 1141 bulb, and the brown wire is unused - unless you also want to light the low-watt 1141 filament and a small "side" marker light in the capsule for more light. I used small "bullet" connectors because in future I'm sure I'll have to replace the unit when the 1141 bulb burns out - but at least I'll have reliable lighting without the rapid corrosion.
